Dividend Income Update September 2018

The beginning of every month is exciting for all dividend income investors as we look back at the previous month and see how much passive dividend income our portfolios generated. No doubt, these are the best posts to write and read online as it only provides further proof that dividend investing can work over time and that anyone can create an ever growing passive income stream. Looking back at my September totals I see that my year over year progress is moving at a nice clip. Now that three quarters of 2018 are in the books my annual dividend income picture is looking a lot clearer. With that being said, let’s take a look back at my September 2018 dividend income.

 

Dividend income from my taxable account totaled $809.61 up from $668.52 an increase of 21.1% from September of last year.

 

Dividend income from my ROTH account totaled $172.41 up from $154.87 an increase of 11.3% from this time last year.

 

Dividend income from my IRA account totaled $5.70 down from $44.03 from this time last year. A decrease of -87.1%. No cause for concern here as payment schedules of CCP (now SBRA) and VTR have shifted from September.

 

Grand total for the month of September: $987.72 an increase of 13.9% from September 2017.

The proof of our dividend investing strategy rests in these real results. After all, dividends don’t lie. It’s real cash being returned to investors. With patience and consistency these results and better can be achieved. I’m excited to see what the final quarter of 2018 will bring. All I know for certain is that the market will definitely be higher, lower or flat come New Year’s Eve! In other words, I’ll continue with my monthly buys and slowly build up my passive income stream share by individual share and let the experts worry about what might happen.

 

Are any of these dividend stocks in your portfolio too? How was your September dividend income? Please let me know below.

  1. Great job Keith! Just shy of $1k but I’d be willing to be come December you’re crossing that mark. We’ve got double digit companies in common and I’ll be adding D to my dividend totals in September too after my small purchase last month. Keep up the good work!

  2. We share six of the same September dividend payers.You had solid YOY growth especially considering your capital base. Keep snowballing those dividends!

  3. The beginning of the month is exciting for dividend income investors! What a nice month for dividend income for you, DivHut! So close to 4 digits, and a 13.9% increase is impressive. You’re exactly right when you said this is proof that dividend investing works. I am not currently holding any of these stocks. My September income was solid with a nice yoy increase. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Keith – I love this line right here “The proof of our dividend investing strategy rests in these real results. After all, dividends don’t lie. ” Couldn’t have said it better myself and I don’t think we could find a better example of this than you. You continue to stay focused, invest, and grow your income. Stick to the plan and execute it. I love it! Congrats on yet another great month and keep on inspiring.

  5. Hi Divhut,
    Solid month as always! So close to $1000 as well! Great work building up your portfolio, it really shows that it is possible.
    I am only sharing dividend from PFE with you this month 🙂

  6. Excellent results as always, DivHut. Not only creeping up on the $1K month, but a couple of individual names pushing for $100 in your taxable account in AFL and SO. SO, D and ED made for a nice haul from the utilities sector, too.
    Your patience and consistency continue to be rewarded. Keep up the strong efforts!

  7. Indeed, dividends don‘t lie and there was another nice cash stream generated by your very solid portfolio. Keep it up, it really is amazing to see the progress. Happy to have you as fellow shareholder in Unilever and PepsiCo.
    We had a very good September too, almost USD 800 and I am particularly happy about a 80 % YoY growth.
